Temple Hills Residence by Schola Architecture, Home Addition and Remodel in Laguna Beach, California

June 26, 2015 Beach House Design


Description from Schola Architecture :
The Temple Hills Residence is an addition and remodel to an existing 1940′s post and beam home located in Laguna Beach, California. The existing home is located at the base of an extremely sloping lot. Collaborating with the owner who is a fellow architect and long time colleague added another dimension to the design process, which resulted in a richer design solution.

The solution that followed was one that respected the existing home while experimenting with post and beam construction. The solution would be to place the addition to the rear and uphill from the existing home. The new and old area separated by zone of glass connecting the two. The addition exploits the the modular nature of post and beam construction. The design is anchored to the hillside with a monolithic CMU pillar from which the spaces and structure are pin wheeled off, creating interesting interior and exterior living spaces as well as structural connections.
